What can you eat without cooking? Healthy dishes
If you don't know what to eat without turning on the stove on hot summer day, you'll be glad to know there are many healthy and tasty dishes.
And not just that, eating raw food is now one of the most popular fashion trends among Hollywood stars, as it lets you enjoy the original taste of all the ingredients. There are many benefits to this kind of diet:
- All vitamins and mineral salts are preserved;
- It is rich in water, fresher and hydrating;
- It is healthier and lighter, since food doesn't need fat to be cooked.
Tasty dishes and food for your summer nights
When we talk about gourmet recipes, we automatically think about elaborate preparations and complex cooking methods. Actually, you can prepare gourmet dishes even in a simple way, by using quality ingredients, condiments and spices.
For instance, to dress up your classic salad, use some nuts and a yoghurt, lemon and honey dressing. Or add exotic ingredients, such as strawberries, figs and pomegranate. If you use the salad as side dish for a fresh fish or red meat tartar, you'll have a complete and delicious meal ready.
Cous cous is the perfect carbohydrate if you don't want to turn on the stove: place it in a container, cover it with lukewarm water and season it with feta, cherry tomatoes and cucumber for an alternative Greek salad. With fruits and vegetables, you can make excellent cold soups, such as gazpacho.
